Williamsburg is slowly consuming itself. It's a hipster ouroboros. Dispatches from the L train as I journeyed from 3rd Ave to the Bedford stop and back again.
  1. This graffiti.
    2767ebf4 f81f 40a4 a311 5fd4ccca5692
    Where the L train meets Manhattan at the 3rd ave stop (on a Ted 2 poster).
  2. These shoes.

    Fancy brogues
  3. Subway peformer: cellist. Young white male.
  4. Beige baggu backpack on chic minimalist commuter.
    The Pinterest palate
  5. This overheard (very drunk) conversation. "I'm keeping all these personalities afloat and no one wants to give me credit. They'd all drown without me." "Women are martyrs. From the day we're born we're martyrs."
    Preach, I guess.
  6. Subway performer: magician. Young white male.
  7. Subway whatever this is. Young white male.

  8. Seen from another angle. I donated $1 to take this picture. He handed me his card.

    The stuff of nightmares.

  10. His card.

    Of course.
  11. Screen grab of his homepage
    7aab3784 a756 4849 a4ee 4f675df314f1
    This all checks out.
  12. One panel of a comic from the section "comics."
    9d9cd8b5 d2d6 4c74 81d5 0660e60e9acf
    Too on the nose
  13. The chart you get when you click the section "commissions"
    7864ddbc fc22 41c7 a702 ecc703e7907e
    Needs improvement.
  14. Subway breakdancing.
    7b2c0b11 3990 4e6d 8566 e1b44477f630
    A welcome respite from the bullshit.
